Roswell Day of Hope

JOIN THE ROSWELL DAY OF HOPE MOVEMENT!

Due to the Covid19 virus, The Roswell Day of Hope is cancelled for 2020. Please check back for our spring 2021 date.

FREE shoes, haircuts, medical / dental exams and more will be offered to those in need.

This year, there’s a twist.  

Join us for our initial Launch Event so we can transform The Roswell Day of Hope from a one day event into a movement that creates and inspires a mindset of serving our community year round.

WHAT

You’re invited to come and learn how you can serve your community throughout the year. God called us to love our neighbors and to serve one another. We’ve partnered with Roswell’s local non-profits and businesses to bring you a truly one of a kind event. Come out and enjoy coffee tasting from your favorite local coffee shops while interacting with all of the local non-profits on-site. You’ll have a chance to learn about each non-profits mission, needs, and most importantly how you can get involved. Are you genuinely loving your neighbor if it doesn’t cost you something?  We don’t always have time to serve. Family or work commitments take up so much of our time but we are blessed when we serve. Whether you serve with your time or your money, you will feel like you’re receiving something more than you’re giving.

HOW…

The needs in our community and in our own backyard are so great; helping seniors, at-risk youth, folks with mental health problems, our homeless neighbors or those who have been involved in human trafficking. Organizations will be in attendance to give you specific details regarding how you and your family can serve throughout the year.

WHY…

Several reasons: It’s what we’re called to do by our Creator. It’s not always convenient to serve, but when you turn your focus from self to others, God steps in and makes it worthwhile.

There’s something unique about churches, from different denominations, serving the community together. Add local non-profits, businesses and local government to the mix and it becomes a truly remarkable event.

Learning how to best serve those around us combined with the free offerings we have for our neighbors in need, the Roswell Day of Hope shouldn’t be missed!  Upbeat LIVE music will help usher in the spirit of spring, accompanied by several of our local artists displaying their masterpieces in a silent auction while you’re sipping coffee from local coffeehouses.

Whether you are volunteering at the event or attending as a guest, come and experience a fun atmosphere where families can enjoy time together truly become a part of our community. 

See below, if you’d like to SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER.  Or just come and enjoy the day with us.
